He recently revealed this on his social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, money should never be described as evil because one can be rich yet spiritual since salvation is no respecter of status.
Reno added that nobody is holier than others because he or she is poorer.
His words, “Your financial status has no bearing on your spiritual status. You can be rich and spiritual and poor and unspiritual. Salvation is no respecter of status. You are not holier than others because you are poor. It takes money to spread the Gospel. Money is never evil.”
Do you agree?
Bemigho Reno Omokri (born 1974) is an author and lawyer. Omokri was the host of Transformation with Reno Omokri, a Christian teaching TV show broadcast (for one season) on San Francisco’s KTLN and Detroit’s Impact Network. He is the founder of a multimedia project, Build Up Nigeria, and has produced a series of short films in the U.S.
He is the pastor of the Mind of Christ Christian Center in California and Abuja. He is also known for using social media to project the Gospel. Omokri continues to write articles for major newspapers (mainly political OpEd and Christian material).
On August 17, 2017, the Department of State Security attempted to arrest him at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja but failed. Three days after the failed arrest attempt, the ruling party in Nigeria, the All Progressive Congress, named Omokri, along with former President Goodluck Jonathan and Governors Nyesom Wike and Willie Obiano as some of those showing “hatred, narrow-mindedness and meanness” to President Muhammadu Buhari.
He was one of three spokesmen to the former President, and is credited with pioneering the use of social media for political purposes in Nigeria.
